When we were kids, orange couches were part of our life.
This is Monica's mom in the early 1960's in front of the orange couch that was in Monica's living room when she was growing up until 1976 when it was replaced.
This is Rob's grandmother's orange couch as Christmas decorating got started in 1962. Rob's grandmother lived next door to him and he was here every day as was that couch until it was replaced in the 1980's.
On Wednesday, May 20th, there was an estate sale that pictured the couch that we both wanted so badly. We only discovered the sale a few days before but quickly had vacation days approved and, to make a long story short, we got the orange couch and the matching chair.
It was nearly perfect. It's only flaw was that some of the foam in the cushions was a little hard and brittle. We ordered some new foam, waited the three weeks until it was in stock, and brought it home. After carefully measuring and cutting the foam to size, we replaced the hard foam with brand new thick, comfortable foam and the cushions look and feel perfect!
We have had the furniture in our living room for months but we finally decided to take some pictures and share them with you.
Two pictures of our new couch in our living room.
And, as we mentioned, it came with a matching chair!
